Season 32 HOF rundown

Here’s my take on this season’s HOF nominees. Some interesting debates are sure to ensue!
No Doubt
Alex Valdes – A career-long member of the Ice, I readily admit my bias here. But Valdes is perhaps the only sure-fire HOFer on this list. He mashed 645 HR with 1600+ RBI and 1500+ R.
